Hey, RuffTail Runners!
We've got an amazing event coming up that features RuffTail Runners, and benefits Austin Pets Alive! And, I don't want to hear any, "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you... we might get in trouble..."
A few years back, the Paramount Theater and the Austin Marathon dug Team Spiridon's little pub runs, and we began partnering with them to put them on. Now, they're light on the pubs and running, but heavy on the fun. And, if you wish, the free local brews. We meet at the Paramount, run to a fun, topical location (free beer), and head back to the Paramount (free beer) for a classic movie.
They've been epic - the maiden voyage in 2010 only turned up 45 runners... in 19-degree, high-wind weather. Shaun of the Dead drew hundreds, as did Back to the Future. There's been Planet of the Apes, Juan of the Dead, and always, costumes. And now... Animal House.
We'll meet at the Paramount, run to Bangers, back to Paramount for more beer, where you'll grab a brew. Don't cost nothin'. (well, the first two don't) And then, is it over? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell, no!
Because then, we'll see Animal House. "Low humor of the highest order." (David Ansen, Newsweek.)
I anticipate a deeply religious experience. There will, however, be NO FOOD FIGHT. Anyone starting one will be placed on double-secret probation. The time has come for someone to put his foot down. And that foot is me.
Spots are limited, so click here to buy yer tickets in advance! Let's see lots of RuffTailers out there for this!
(p.s. - whoever's going and first comments below, naming all the Animal House quotes herein, and what character says them, WITHOUT RESEARCHING, will get... um... a Team Spiridon running cap, and a RuffTail Runners shirt, which we should have available in February. Every instance of the word "beer" does not count.)
